It’s so important to put the loving first.
Love of yourself and then love of others. People can feel your loving most, not with words, but with actions and presence.
Instead of trying to correct, change or otherwise influence those you love, just meet them where they are, right now, and love them there.
This includes you. Meet yourself where you are. If there is anything you want to change about yourself, first accept where you are and love it. Acceptance and love of where you are, right now, makes change and transformation much easier. Instead of fighting against a negative self-image, you are embracing a positive self-image. As a result, the process of change and transformation is joyful rather than stressful.
Another way to meet yourself and others where you are is to drop the word “should” from your vocabulary. In truth, there is nothing you should have done differently; there is nothing they should have done differently; there is only reality, your acceptance of it as it is, and a gentle transformation of it moment by moment to a more loving state.
When you should all over yourself & others, you have stepped out of love and into fear.
Nestle into self-love and acceptance of the moment. All good things flow to the humble heart that knows all is well and getting better.
So, in your loving today, don’t love them and yourself if they are only the way you want. Love them and yourself where you are right now. Watch what beauty happens
